Lima, Peru, cob ½ real, (1659), "Star of Lima," very rare. S-L5. 1.2 grams. The distinctive monogram and crown of this very rare issue was only recently attributed, as the date in the periphery is rarely seen, this specimen being quite educational in that the crown and monogram are full, as is also the cross (perfectly centered), just a little corrosion all over. Recovered from: San Miguel el Arcangel ("Jupiter wreck"), sunk in 1659 off the east coast of Florida.
